CHURCHILL DOWNS Race #7
Sunday 05/24 04:10 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (BACKSHOT) (4-1) - He's stretching out to a mile after missing by a 'head' when sprinting at this level April 24 at Oaklawn Park. $350K purchase was racing of an eight-month break, and I like his chances in this one-turn mile.
2nd pick: #5 (Established) (5-1) - A $400,000 son of 'Constitution,' he finished a pace-chasing 2nd when debuting in a Fair Grounds sprint March 13. Well backed that day, he's been working fast at the Fair Hill Center in Maryland, and is a win candidate in this spot.
3rd pick: #12 (Per Capita) (7-2) - One of three 4yos entered, he was a winner at this distance April 11 at Gulfstream, but was disqualified and placed 2nd. It was a very good performance, and this home-bred by 'Tapit' is working above average, draws a fine post, and is a rather obvious win candidate.
4th pick: #6 (Copper King) (6-1) - Another of the 4yos entered, he's gone 10-0-5-3 to date and has finished 2nd in three of his last four at Oaklawn Park. A $625,000 purchase, he's capable of factoring, but he will need to step it up some for any shot at the win end.
5th pick: #9 (Pit Boss) (15-1) - He rallied from far back to finish 2nd when debuting at Oaklawn at this level while going 8.5 furlongs April 11. The 3yo moves off the rail, and this $250,000 son of 'Union Rags' may grab a share.
